>> one, i think the timing of this is terrible. he's coming off of two or three very bad weeks, and being so close to the election, this could be ruinous. he's rung on the numbers, but to your point or the broader, substantive point about the substance of what he said, i really don't frankly understand the outrage, because it seems to me he has stolen a page right of obama's playbook on this. i want to read a clip from a fund-raiser that obama held in 2011 in san francisco where he told donors, as he told people on the stump for a year, unless he's re-elected, we'll have a government that tells the american people, you're on your own. if you get sick, can't afford college, you're on your own. if you don't like a corporation polluting the air, you're on your own. if he's not calling his voters victims, we need a new definition of the word.
